Just catching up on a bunch of pre-orders I had somehow forgotten to get in... ...anyway - does anyone know whether there is going to be a speciallimited edition of Happy Birthdays???

I just find it weird that NISAmerica (who have been releasing Special Editions versions of EVERY single game they've printed), doesn't seem to even list this one game on their website... thoughts??

GameStop has the only version I've see with different contents inside. Has a World Guide Art Book

You can get it from Amazon (with a Prime discount, no less!!) with the "world guide" book. I was just about to order from Gamestop, when I took a closer look at the Amazon description:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079SQPG59/

"Find inspiring worlds and preview some of the happy birthdays from the game in the Softcover "world guide" bundled with the Switch game."

So yeah - FORGET Gamestop!!!! Bunch of thieves over there...

...still - I find it weird that NISAmerica isn't doing a "special" release. They've been creating those bundles for EVERY Switch release, so far!!

Great catch! and GameStop order has been cancelled.

Only thing I can think of is they don't think it will sell well.

@HiFX all of these were already announced though. The last two are by NISA, some of the biggest supporters of the switch.

@SVTornado Cool. Didn't see them on the 1st page of the topic, so I wasn't sure if they were mentioned

@HiFX they were mentioned, but they aren't added to the list yet.

what up with payday 2 being not available at most places already?

@fatbaldman what what I've heard is that stores didn't expect to be able to sell this game. So they ordered very little. This isn't a problem in Europe though.

@fatbaldman I really don't know, because I live in Europe where it's available pretty much everywhere.

I HIGHLY recommend going directly to NIS America for these games (if you're really into collecting, that is). They have some FANTASTIC looking bundles for each of these games (and more!) and they consistently sell out.

Anyway - just a suggestion. If you are a collector and you have the extra money to spend, DEFINITELY check these guys out: https://store.nisamerica.com/

@SVTornado right here its not even available on amazon

Hmmm... ...weird, because I was holding off on buying this one - waiting for it to go on sale (and I could SWEAR Best Buy had it as recently as a few days ago!!!). But now you're right - it's totally gone from their store.

That said, I did see it on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0788XQ6WW/) - and thanks to you and your post, I immediately placed my order!!! I hate having to pay full price for this, but I also don't want to run the risk of this being one of those "low production" run games, that I completely fail to get...

Wow this is crazy...... I was looking for it last week but decided to wait. It should get a reprint but luckily 1 of 7 area Best Buy had one and I went to grab it. Collecting really is a roll of the dice. Thanks for the tip

Does anybody know what the situation is with Aqua & Snow Moto Racing??

We've got them listed here as "released" (and they were released in the UK) - but I'm finding NA release information scarce. I did just note them as available for a 4/24 release on Gamestop - does anyone know if this is true and accurate???

Very confused by these two games...

One more question for the evening: Any suggestions as to where to purchase some of these imports? I'm having a great deal of problems trying to order these without getting scammed - especially the German import ones (Island Simulator, Tales of the Tiny Planet, etc.). Just wondering if any of you have been purchasing these games and, if so, where you've been doing so.

Specific games in question (some of these we have as "release", but might actually still be "pre-order only":

  • Aqua & Snow Moto Racing (mentioned in my previous post)
  • Vegas Party (UK Import)
  • Ostwin Das Spiel (Germany Import)
  • Island Flight Simulator (Germany Import)
  • Tales of the Tiny Planet (Germany Import)

If you guys can point me to some reputable retails (NOT eBay!!) where I can get some or all of these games, I would REALLY appreciate it!!

THANKS!!!
